Custom Chrome recently held its European Dealer Show in conjunction with the European leg of its International Bike Show Series at Phönix-Hall, in Mainz, Germany. It was Custom Chrome Europe’s lucky 13th year conducting its show and dealers, custom bike builders and motorcycle enthusiasts from around Europe made the trek to enjoy another spectacular weekend in Mainz. The show attracted over 100 of the finest European custom motorcycles to compete in the prestigious event in the Championship, Modified Harley, RevTech Performance and Jammer Old School Classes. There was also a People’s Choice winner in addition to Special and Magazine Awards.

The winner of the Championship Class was Larry Houghton of Lamb Engineering, LTD., out of the United Kingdom for its custom BSA called “Son of a Gun.” Houghton was able to hold off defending champion Garage 65 out of Italy and its entry called Stargate. This was no easy feat considering Garage 65’s Stargate recently won The Verona Motor Bike Show. But Lamb Engineering’s clean interpretation of a modern café racer powered by a big BSA Single was hard to beat.
